No. At present, the licensing of tour agent’s activities is not provided by current legislation.

If the director of the company (for which you are planning to obtain a tour operator’s license) does not have a higher education, but he has a work experience in the sphere of tourism three years and more, which is confirmed by employment records, then in this case it is possible to obtain a tour operator license.
Do I need to have a guarantee of bank or other financial institution in order to obtain a license, or I can get it after obtaining a license?
A guarantee of bank or financial institution is the mandatory and one of the main documents, which are submitted to the licensing authority in the course of license obtaining. So, you won’t be able to obtain license without bank guarantee.
If I already have an active company, can I obtain a license for this company?
No. This is because in accordance with the legislation only the company, for which organization and supporting of tourism product creation (tour operator activity), implementation and provision of travel services, as well as intermediary activities concerning provision of related services is the exclusive activity. For that reason, you need to register a new company or to change types of activity of active company in order to obtain a license.
